SO WHAT’S THE HOLD UP? « The Burning Platform

What's the holdup? Because the oppressor in chief is performing exactly according the script, his handlers have no reason to get rid of him.

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a conspiracy theorist, but where I differ from most is I know there is a chief conspirator, the Devil. He is not one to be underestimated. While we can't destroy him, but we can destroy his works,

"The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil." (1 John 3:8b, ESV)

"“Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I am going to the Father." (John 14:12, ESV)

We can destroy the works of the Devil by dismantling, piece by piece, the paradigms and thought processes impressed upon us by the world, by putting on the new man,

"and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness." (Ephesians 4:24, ESV)

Without identifying the true enemy, then it's impossible to defend against his attacks, which are becoming bolder by the day.

"Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil has come down to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!” (Revelation 12:12, ESV)

The call to believers, born again of the spirit of Christ, is to persevere and to stand against all the wiles of the Devil.

"Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil." (Ephesians 6:11, ESV)

We have this calling so that we will not be deceived, and that we can overcome the darkness of this world,

"Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” (Matthew 18:18-20, ESV)

It is an awesome privilege to be called of God. Do not be deceived and do not let the Devil and Satan steal the word of God from your hearts. There is no higher calling, nor greater privilege. It is also necessary to hold back the flood of the spirit kingdom, and to prevent the overthrow of God's people on earth. You want to know that you're saved, for yourself, your family and your neighbors, if you care about them. It is a commandment. Our time on this earth is short, make the best of it. We are more than conquerors through him who first loved us. Amen.
